Gather the ingredients for these homemade rice crispy treats with Fruity Pebbles

To get started on making these homemade rice crispy treats with Fruity Pebbles, you'll want to make sure you have everything on hand first. Start out by grabbing all of your ingredients and setting them out. The process for making these treats goes quite quickly, so having everything in front of you will certainly help.

For this recipe, you'll need half of a cup of butter, eleven and a half cups of mini marshmallows, two cups of Rice Krispies cereal, and seven cups Fruity Pebbles cereal. With just four ingredients, you'll have the most delicious, fruity snack!

Melt the butter for these homemade rice crispy treats with Fruity Pebbles

The first step for making these homemade rice crispy treats with Fruity Pebbles is to prep your pan. Prepare a 9x13-inch pan by spraying it with cooking spray. In addition, spray the wooden spoon or spatula you'll be using to be sure the marshmallow mixture doesn't stick.

Put a Dutch oven or large pot on the stovetop on medium heat. Add the half of a cup of butter. Allow the butter to completely melt before moving onto the next step. You may need to break up the butter and stir to help the melting process.

Melt the marshmallows for these homemade rice crispy treats with Fruity Pebbles

Once the butter for your homemade rice crispy treats with Fruity Pebbles is fully melted, it's time to add in your mini marshmallows. Set aside one and a half cups of the mini marshmallows to use later. Then, add the remaining ten cups marshmallows into the Dutch oven with the melted butter. Stir the mixture well to fully coat the marshmallows with the butter to allow the marshmallows to begin melting.

Continue stirring the mixture until the marshmallows are fully melted. Be sure not to let the marshmallows get too hot or burn to the bottom of the pan.

Add the cereal mixture for these homemade rice crispy treats with Fruity Pebbles

Once the marshmallows are fully melted, it's time to add in the cereal for your homemade rice crispy treats with Fruity Pebbles mixture. Pour the Fruity Pebbles and Rice Krispies into a bowl and mix. Next, pour the cereal mixture into the Dutch oven with the melted marshmallow mixture, and stir until well combined. Stir in the reserved one and a half cups of mini marshmallows.

If you're not using a Dutch oven, mix the cereals in a large bowl, and then pour the melted marshmallow mixture over top. Stir the mixture in the bowl rather than the pot.

Press and let the rice crispy treats set

Once the homemade rice crispy treats with Fruity Pebbles mixture is fully combined, with the marshmallows moistening the cereal, you're ready to put the mixture into the prepared pan.

Scoop the entire rice crispy treat mixture into the pan, and use a spoon to press it down evenly. Be sure you don't press down too firmly to compress the mixture into the pan. Otherwise, it will end up dry. Press down just enough to form a nice, even layer. Once the pan is filled, allow your rice crispy treats to cool and set for a minimum of 20 minutes. Once set, cut the treats into squares.
